How would be my trip to Iran during Ramadan?

update: 2023

There is a wide religious diversity in Iran, but like other Middle Eastern countries, a large population in Iran is Muslim. Although it seems that Ramadan greatly impacts society, the reality is something else.
Ramadan is considered a holy month for all Muslims around the world so you expect to see a different atmosphere during Ramadan. However, except in religious cities like Mashhad and Qom, the regular routine of life is still maintained all around the country.

What to expect in Ramadan:



Not really, almost all the restaurants are open and you can eat and drink inside the restaurants without any concern. The hotels where you are staying will also have their daily service during Ramadan

Apart from basic rules, it is better to avoid eating and drinking in public places during the day.

Holding a group ceremony of reciting the Qur’an, distributing free food and drinks after sunset, and especially on the last day of Ramadan, which is known as Eid al-Fitr, is one of the special events of Ramadan, which can be especially attractive for tourists.

Yes, all tourist attractions are open and there is no limitation.
